Santa Fe High School Reviews

As a student at Santa Fe high school, I found myself taking a more rigorous schedule, with many honors and AP’s. I believe this personal choice opened up many more opportunities for me, as well as changing my experience with teacher, students, etc. At SFHS, it’s easy to not be seen if that’s what you want. It’s easy to ditch, to fail, and to make bad decisions. However, if you make the personal choice to prepare for college, have a rigorous schedule, and reach out to teachers and administrators it’s also easy to succeed. SFHS is a place where your experience is completely based on your own choices. Every student’s experience is completely different.

This school is absolutely fantastic, it is so diverse and over all a different experience. You have different "Academy's" for people who are different learners. There's so many different opportunities with not only things such as sport but performing arts as well as; performing arts, key club, chess club, science club, morning announcement crew, and so many more clubs and overall fun things to be apart of. Santa Fe High is a very different t school and my time there has been so fun. It has so much opportunity ready for you to take advantage of, with some of the best teachers to help you on your way.
This school is a good school academics are fairly good however the sciences within the school are extremely strong taught by some Ph.D.'s in there field but also teachers that produce great results however social studies are not as effective. Next the social life is terrible and not very focused on school . The parent involvement is also very poor athletics especially football however the rest of the sports are faily good.
